Galeria de la Raza is pleased to present Real N.D.N: Native Diaspora Now, a provocative, multimedia exhibition featuring a diverse array of artworks by the Indigenous Arts Coalition exploring the question: 'Who is today’s real N.D.N.?'


The exhibition includes filmmakers, painters, poets, photographers, performance, and mixed-media artists offering a visual response to the challenging —and often controversial— questions: How do we represent community in our individualized practices and perspectives? How do percentages of Native blood divide and define us as individuals or as members of a community? What does it mean to have to prove your race through a number, certificate, skin color, or type of art that you make? What defines contemporary Native American art? Who are the judges?


In conjunction with the exhibition, the Indigenous Arts Coalition will launch its new website, designed to better enhance the viewer’s experience with the group's artists and communities. Reaching into digital frontiers, IAC will further expand the dialogue and awareness for Native American artists in the Bay Area.


The Indigenous Arts Coalition (IAC) was founded in 2008 by a group of Indigenous artists of all disciplines to acknowledge, support, promote, and maintain all visual aspects of contemporary indigenous arts in the Bay Area. Since its formation, IAC has established a community of art connections, resources, networks, and friendships through art shows, community events, and fundraisers.


Real N.D.N: Native Diaspora Now is made possible thanks to the support received from Galeria de la Raza’s GINAA Artist Fund, (Grantwriting for Indigenous and Native American Artists), a capacity-building and small grants program serving Native American and Indigenous artists from the Americas. This program is made possible with the support of the Native American Arts and Cultural Traditions Program of the San Francisco Arts Commission.  The IAC received additional support from Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program.
